    Bob Goldthwait -- Don't Watch This Show

    ★★★

    An 80s cable special starring Bobcat Goldthwait.

    Directed by Savage Steve Holland.

    Co-written by one of the scribes of Rocko's Modern Life and Phineas & Ferb.

    Featuring guests such as Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Kenny, Dee Snider...and Albert Einstein.

    Yep, it's as goofy and weird as it sounds.

    It was an amusing find on YouTube (youtu.be/qXnPaxz-iwg) with Bobcat's unhinged/super-anxious/nutjob act cracking me up along with a few very funny highlights ( a dark sitcom parody, Goldberg's theme song pitch ). Worth checking out...that is, if you enjoy Bobcat's act.

    I could easily see Adult Swim finding this and using it as an April fool's airing.

    Great performances from the cast (especially John Ritter, Carol Burnett, and Christopher Reeve), plus impressive directing by Peter Bogdanovich. Plenty of hilarious physical comedy that is really well done. The chaos backstage at the second show, for example, is hands down the highlight of the movie. The slapstick, camerawork, timing, and acting was excellent. Just amazing!

    Nostalgia in full effect!

    The tale of a group of young prehistoric creatures on a long, dangerous journey to a safe haven (The Great Valley) is just as engaging, touching and entertaining as it was when I saw it as a kid.

    Don Bluth and his team did an excellent job on the animation that still holds up to this day. The same goes for the late James Horner's great music score. I felt like a kid again; memories of…
